Wend your way to wellness!
Prepare to be surprised and delighted, moved and enlightened as Bobby Baker demonstrates how she achieves that ultimate ‘wellbeing’ factor. From working-out to chilling out, via the kitchen sink, Bobby’s wellness roadshow investigates how to get better at feeling better - cup of tea included.
Bobby has developed this brand new show out of her own experiences of illness and hard-won recovery. Designed in collaboration with sculptor Charlie Whittuck, an extraordinary set of fantastical ‘recovery’ apparatus promises surprises galore as well as state-of-the-art technical equipment, all developed with wellbeing in mind.
Follow Bobby’s expert example and join her on the road to wellness - and beyond.
Mad Gyms & Kitchens has been commissioned for Unlimited, a project celebrating disability, arts, culture and sport on an unprecedented scale as part of the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad.
The project is principally funded by the National Lottery through the Olympics Lottery Distributor, and is delivered in partnership between London 2012, Arts Council England, the Scottish Arts Council, Arts Council of Wales, Arts Council of Northern Ireland and the British Council.
I would go without food for a week just to get a ticket for her next show
